40 Fabulous Photos of Patricia Morison in the 1930s and ’40s

Born 1915 as Eileen Patricia Augusta Fraser Morison in Manhattan, New York City, American actress and mezzo-soprano singer Patricia Morison made her feature film debut in 1939 after several years on the stage, and amongst her most renowned were The Fallen Sparrow, Dressed to Kill opposite Basil Rathbone and the screen adaptation of The Song of Bernadette.


Morison was lauded as a beauty with large blue eyes and extremely long, dark hair. During this period of her career, she was often cast as the femme fatale or “other woman”. It was only when she returned to the Broadway stage that she achieved her greatest success as the lead in the original production of Cole Porter’s Kiss Me, Kate and subsequently in The King and I.

In later years Morison devoted herself to painting—one of her early passions—and had several showings in and around Los Angeles. Never married and childless, she lived in the Park La Brea apartment complex in Los Angeles from 1961 onwards. She died in 2018 at her home in West Hollywood, aged 103 years old.
